The Madison Academy volleyball team might be young, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t impress their fans on the court. There are 14 girls on this year’s team. There are four fifth graders, five sixth graders, four seventh graders and only one eighth grader. So far the Academy’s record is five wins and four losses, with three of their four losses coming from teams that were much older and much more advanced.
The captain for the Academy this year is Katelyn McCamman, and the co-caption changes each week. Katelyn McCammon, Natalie Vasquez and Kaylie Rogers lead the team in serves. The head coach this year is Cathy Rogers; assistant coach is Julie Townsend; and scorekeeper is Melissa McCamman.
The team has gone to a University of Florida volleyball game, as well as attended the Fields of Faith event at the high school.
Cathy Rogers said of the team, “We have a very supportive group of parents and I am proud to be part of this group of young ladies.”
